What is included

As a customs union the EU benefits from import procedures that are greatly harmonised. Only a few differences amongst its 28 member states remain.

We have collected the main competent authorities in each of the EU member states for businesses with imported goods. You can also find the authorities who assist you with:

  • where to lodge the single administrative document

  • which free zones are available for use

  • how to obtain import licenses

  • inspections of live animals and products of animal origin

  • phytosanitary inspections

  • health control of foodstuffs and feedingstuffs

  • marketing standards for agricultural and fishery products

  • control of trade in chemicals, fertilisers, and waste

  • technical standardisation

  • packaging and labelling requirements
